As a reminder, our zine is donating ALL proceeds to Planned Parenthood. This was a decision made by our team, as we believe that access to bodily autonomy and healthcare is a human right. This is an issue that the Gravity Falls cast and crew deeply support, as well as one that can save lives.
Consider buying a zine by June 30th or making a personal donation.
This year, continuing the GF 10th Anniversary celebrations, I decided to do a kind of tribute to some of the show’s minor characters through the group’s Summerween costume choices! I’d be surprised if you can’t guess all of these, but I’ll put the key below a read-more below.
Happy 10th Anniversary Gravity Falls!
And Happy Birthday to Stan and Ford!
And also Happy Birthday to Alex!
And me! (It’s been an eventful week!)
We’ll meet again some sunny day!
And they didn’t….
Because Bill is still a statue.
But everyone else got together for a reunion at a secluded lake with a lovely view of the cliffs!
Headcanons for this:
Mabel dyed her hair during quarantine and never looked back.
Pacifica asked Mabel to give her some purple streaks once they were vaccinated and able to get together again.
Dipper kept working out since his encounter with the Manotaurs because he wanted to be able to keep up with his Grunkles on future adventures.
Mabel ended up with more of a large, strong woman physique from continuing to carry Waddles around as he grew.
Dipper and Mabel both eventually needed glasses like their Grunkles.
Ford finally got new ones and miraculously hasn’t broken them yet.
Stan hasn’t cut his hair since passing the title of Mr. Mystery on to Soos.
They both earned a spattering of white hairs to go with their gray from encountering (and running away from) anomalies around the world… And maybe from dealing with each other’s terrible jokes for so long.
Soos and Melody started a family. They’re not sure how many kids they want yet.
Fiddleford and Tate have mended their relationship and work on an invention, fish, or hike together at least once a month. Fiddleford made them an ice fishing shanty-bot and revisited his robot legs idea for long hikes.
Candy, Grenda, and Mabel are still best friends but now with the addition of Pacifica to their group.
Wendy stuck around to help her dad with his business and is still the coolest woman in town.
Thank you to everyone who made this show possible! I’ve met some amazing friends and super talented creators in this fandom and have loved every minute of mysteries, anomalies, and ciphers! It got me through some rough times, inspired me to draw again, and inspired me to write several hundred thousand words.
(Since it’s also pride month, clicky the images for more/clearer detail and see if you can spot a few little references I added, I mean, aside from the umbrella basically being a giant pride flag.)
This zine looks amazing! I live in Europe - do you do international shipping, and if so is it at an extra cost?
Yes, we do! For Europe the cost would be $15 USD
Day 10- @gf10yearslaterzine
My favorite memory would absolutely be the day my family and I all sat together on our couch to watch the last episode. All of us were hooked on the show, and it kind of became “our show”… we have a lot of complications but this? This meant a lot to us. I remember crying before it even began because of how bittersweet the moment was for all of us. It’s a moment that means a lot to me….
Happy Birthday Stan and Ford and Gravity Falls!
Today is not only Stan and Ford’s birthday, but also the 10th anniversary of Gravity Falls! Many of you, especially people who have been following me for years, know that I drew A LOT of GF fanart, especially featuring Stans. My obsession with this show inevitably went away, but Gravity Falls is in my heart forever! It really helped me get better at drawing and to expand my audience <3
Jason bought a copy!!! (He was too nice to let me pay for it). Hopefully more of the team will see this message!!!
We’re trying to send a free copy of the zine to the Gravity Falls team!!! Help us boost our message on Twitter if you can!
Of course, it’s not just the 10th Anniversary of Gravity Falls – it’s Stan and Ford’s birthday, as well! Despite that other project monopolizing my time, I didn’t want to miss doing a piece for this occasion. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our favorite grunkles! Here, a return to Glass Shard Beach; and wearing their kid outfits, for good measure.
HAPPY 10th ANNIVERSARY TO GRAVITY FALLS!

Back in Oct. 2018, my project for inktober was at least one pic from every episode. Because of the pace, there were restrictions; I did each on a post-it note, limited coloring, and chose things that would fit the square format and that I could get done in time (between working full-time and owl-banding most nights). I always sort of wanted to redo a bunch of those; but really, what occasion would merit putting in THAT much time and effort for a project of that size?
Well, how about for the 10th anniversary of the premiere of Gravity Falls?
I’m not saying this was a *smart* project to tackle, but I thought it might be “easier” because I had first drafts of most of the pieces; I just wanted to redo them so they’d look better, with 4 more years of practice under my belt and a new move to digital art. (Narrator: it was not really easier.) Some I redid completely, or did new to create the full sets above. Basically, once I’d hit on this idea, and decided to link it to the refrain of “How Far We’ve Come”, I was committed; there was no way I was going to *not* try to do it.
I know that “How Far We’ve Come” gets fanvidded for eight billion different shows. But, the first time I heard the song was in one of the first Gravity Falls fanvids I ever watched (link below), so it will always be a GF song for me.
Gravity Falls has meant a lot to me for the past 6 years that I’ve been active in the fandom. I have no doubt it will always have a big place in my heart. I’m definitely not done with things I’d like to do for it. I’m so glad to see people coming together to celebrate this big anniversary!
ALSO: needless to say, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Stan and Ford!

Day 10: A special memory
I supposed that if I had to I could come up with a favorite memory, I could do so— but with hesitation. From presenting at academic conferences to watching my kids start a Bill cult at school (and then explaining to my boss that the Latin chanting and Illuminati imagery are all Disney approved), I have my fair share of memories.
Gravity Falls has given me everything, to put it mildly. Though I’m sure this is a sentiment many of us share. It gave me my calling as an academic, guiding me though the ups and downs of a Masters degree. It took me to Cal Arts (and promptly home again to study in Chicago). It’s taken me to 7 years of conventions with 5 cosplays. It’s given me Fanfiction, so much Fanfiction that I don’t know the word counts anymore. It’s given me my love of teaching, and treasured moments with my students. Its given me the pleasure of starting up @gf10yearslaterzine It’s given me so many wonderful friends.
How can I choose one moment out of 10 years? How can I do anything but be grateful and humbled?
I love Gravity Falls because, looking back on 10 years of memories and achievements, it helped me learn to love myself.
I know I’m an bit late to this but,
Happy 10th Anniversary Gravity Falls!
Thank you for all the memories. The sweet times being able to curl up on the sofa and watch a show that to this day fills me with wonder and absolute joy. Thank you for the awesome, and talented community thats come together because of the characters, mystery, and enthralling plot (I’m looking at you @gobblewanker, @mkthedingus, @eregyrn-falls, @stephreynaart, @artsymeeshee, and oh my goodness so many more I couldn’t even tag you all on one post!!!).
And most importantly, thanks Gravity Falls for making weirdos like me feel like we have a place to fit in, one where being odd is something to be proud of.
(I guess this is my Day 10 of the Gravity Falls 10th anniversary celebration. @gf10yearslaterzine)
Have a good one <3
Day 9 favorite quote
oh this was a hard one to choose, cause there are so many good quotes out there, but I think my favorite is one of the last lines in the show…
“Ready to head into the unknown?”
“Nope, let’s do it.”
Happy 10th anniversary to Gravity Falls @gf10yearslaterzine
What can I possibly say about this show? It’s brought me so much joy; so much laughter and tears, so many emotions of all kinds. It’s the feeling of being a part of something; of being enough. I am deserving of love, and family, and self-worth, just as I am. I am good and brave and loyal and selfless. I am everything I need to be. I am enough, and someday the happy ending I deserve will come to me; I just gotta hold out. Sometimes it takes time, and sometimes things aren’t gonna to the way I hoped they would. But I deserve to be loved and I deserve family. And family is something I’ll always have.
Thank you so much to this show and this fandom. I’ve been here for three years now, and I’ve made some of the greatest friends I’ve ever had. I love each and every member of this fandom with all my heart, and I’m so happy to have been able to discover the joy that is this show, and experience such a wonderful community.
I am so grateful for everything that Gravity Falls has given me. I wouldn’t be the same without having watched this wonderful little cartoon and experienced such an amazing fandom. All of you are so kind and caring, and wish love on each and every one of you.
Stanley Pines is my favorite character on this show. He shows that it’s ok to feel down or sad or worthless sometimes. It’s ok to struggle and to screw things up. It’s ok to hurt, and it’s ok to love wildly and freely even when you’ve gotten nothing but pain in return. And most of all, it’s so, so essential that you keep loving, and keep caring about other people, no matter how much your bashed down for your efforts. This thought and feeling has so much power and I’m eternally grateful for it. You don’t need to stop loving. You don’t need to stop being a human being. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be loved either. Stanley Pines is so human it hurts, and the amount of times I’ve cried over this fictional old man is more than I’d like to admit.
We all deserve love. We all deserve family. We are not wrong for wanting these things, and we are certainly not wrong for giving out our love either. There’s this huge sense of validation for being that I get whenever I watch this show. And a sense of validation for loving whenever I look at our beloved Grunkle Stan.
So yeah. Gravity Falls is amazing, and will hold a special place in my heart forever.
Happy ten year anniversary.

💛 Day 10 — a special memory or moment about Gravity Falls💛
I only watched Gravity Falls in 2020, but it was a great time. I remember how on Saturdays, in the evening, I watched two episodes :). I remember watching the last episode in October and crying. As I saw a wooden badge with Dipper in the stationery store. It became the first item in my little Gravity Falls collection :). This animated series gave me a lot of warm memories, you can’t list them all. Basically, this is that in difficult moments I was inspired by the characters, their quotes, actions. Thank you very much, Alex Hirsch!
